Abstract:

The University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy has for ten years been involved in the formal assessment of specific curricular outcomes, examining student performance with regard to defined “abilities”—in essence, the products of our curriculum. With an experienced faculty-governed assessment committee in place to guide the identification of quality indicators for that curriculum, the School sought in 2001 to formalize a reflective self-examination of the process by which those educational products are achieved. A broad base of stakeholders was involved: faculty, students, administrators, and alumni. The resulting strategic planning and monitoring schedule considered goals and performance related to all aspects of the School’s comprehensive mission: education, scholarship, service, and patient care. Strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats were identified; and responses were planned to meet the needs of stakeholders in the current changing environment. Goals and objectives were established that cohere with the University’s vision and goals. Continuous quality improvement is fostered, as monitoring and review of performance occurs annually. Parties responsible for performance related to each objective are consulted each year, and a formal report is presented to the Executive Council. That body considers the goals and the progress made, and is charged with confirming the sustained relevance of goals and assessing the appropriateness of the School’s response. Given the School’s participation as an institution preparing pharmacists for future practice in the wider community, this same spirit of candid self-examination for the purpose of improvement was applied to the preparation of our recent self-study for ACPE re-accreditation (February 2006).
